Recipe Link Love, March 5

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 5, 2011


Our weather report is calling for record amounts of rain all weekend long, but I refuse to complain about the rain when it promises to melt away all the snow! Hopefully by Sunday our snow will be gone (for good).


Things you should know:

  • There are just 8 days until we Spring the clocks forward (which means it will be light out until after 7pm!)
  • Only 15 days until Spring


This news comforts me. Red rose

We’re looking forward to some fun and relaxation this weekend after spending the past two weekends doing renos. We finally finished installing the baseboard and painting them on Thursday night. To finish off the room we need to purchase a chandelier, outlet plates, and move the furniture back in. We have plans to refinish the current table that we have (it is a hand me down and needs a bit of work) and then we will need to purchase some chairs for it at some point. We probably won’t be doing that for a while though because we are a bit ‘reno’ed’ out. It will have to do for now!

We might also buy some curtains, but I may need your advice on that because we really have no idea what will look good in the room. I’m really clueless when it comes to picking out curtains! ‘After’ pictures should be coming up hopefully by the end of the weekend!

Let’s kick off the weekend with these 22 savoury and sweet vegan recipes from around the web. Whether you are looking for a lunch or dinner recipe….or maybe even a sweet snack this weekend, you just may find delicious inspiration here…

I’m so sorry you still have snow! And soooo happy to hear the clocks change in 8 days, I had no idea it was so soon!


Angela (Oh She Glows) March 5, 2011 at 9:29 am

I know I didn’t realize that either…it is SO nice though! I have already noticed the longer days lately and that will make it even better. :)


Kathleen March 5, 2011 at 9:25 am

Mm, loving the look of those tarts and cookies! Okay, and the wild mushroom soup sounds amazing too but I am a total sucker for desserts! :D
Looking forward to the reno ‘after’ shots too; good luck with your final purchasing decisions (but that sounds like the best part, decisions rather than a whole bunch of backbreaking work! ;))


[email protected] March 5, 2011 at 9:28 am

Ahh I have seriously bookmarked 20+ recipes since this series has started, I have some serious cooking to do! I do love having so many wonderful vegan recipes in one place thanks for hosting this :)

Thanks for including my mushroom soup!

I am absolutely loving this “round up.” I have a feeling I’m going to be making some dessert tonight! ANd that microwave blueberry oat cake tomorrow morning… or for dinner… :)


Baking 'n' Books March 5, 2011 at 10:10 am

Yeah, that oat cake looks amazing.

As does all it though. And the clocks go back next weekend??! Wow. It’s actually pretty light out now until 6:30 I find…

Raining here too :(


Mel S March 5, 2011 at 8:07 pm

The oat cake is delicious and so easy to make! I made it last weekend before my long run.


Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 5, 2011 at 6:09 pm

LMK how it turns out for you :)


Emily @ One Sweet Vegan March 5, 2011 at 10:26 am

Since my 3-year-old always wakes up at the crack of dawn, I’m looking forward to springing forward in hopes that he’ll wake up later. It doesn’t always go as I plan, though.
Thank you for posting my Pumpkin, Bean, Quinoa soup! :-)


Embodying Freedom March 5, 2011 at 10:27 am

Ah! A VEGAN Oreo cake? Swoon! Everyone knows that anything Oreo-related is a sure-thing for me. That cake looks so moist/dense too–I’m not a cake fan, but THAT one got me to click over!


Alayna @ Thyme Bombe March 5, 2011 at 10:44 am

I love these posts, there are so many recipes I’ve bookmarked from them!


Richelle March 5, 2011 at 10:50 am

Yay! I am so happy spring is getting closer! We have more snow than you in Alberta though and no forecast for rain. Oh well, longer days means it will warm up and start to melt.


Mary @ Bites and Bliss March 5, 2011 at 10:51 am

Those recipes look fantastic!! I must try those vegan buttermilk biscuits.


barefoot and frolicking March 5, 2011 at 10:52 am

All of these recipes look absolutely amazing! What a perfect weekend to spend in the kitchen (raining here in Niagara too!).


Angela (Oh She Glows) March 5, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Those buttermilk biscuits look amazing!


Jolene ( March 5, 2011 at 11:45 am

That notella looks awesome!

That roasted garlic apple butternut squash soup sounds so delicious! Hope the weather gets better for you soon.


Sarah @ March 5, 2011 at 11:56 am

Wow-these recipes look soooo good! I love that you’re doing this so we can check out other people’s blogs and recipes. (And thanks for including my linguine recipe too!).

I can’t wait to see the “After” pics of your lovely room.

By the way, I don’t know how you survive the winter. I moved to California 10 years ago and have never looked back-we are super spoiled here with too much sunshine! I guess it makes you appreciate the nice weather more than I do!



Angela (Oh She Glows) March 5, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Oh I would kill for the California sunshine right about now!!!


Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty March 5, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Amber K March 5, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I love the recipe from Love Veggies & Yoga! I had never seen that blog before and I love that (at least from what I can tell) her stuff is gluten-free!


Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 5, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Thank you so much :) And yes most (95%+ of what I post is GF)


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 5, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Blech, so far I’m not loving the rain today! It makes me not even want to leave the house. :P


Ari @ ThE DiVa DiSh March 5, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I love this idea :) It’s great seeing all these talented bloggers and their yummy food!


Paije March 5, 2011 at 1:10 pm

I really enjoy your Recipe Love Link! So much talent. :)

Have a great Sat. :)


Emma March 5, 2011 at 3:17 pm

Yay for link love! Besides the fact of getting new great recipes, we discover new great blogs! I can’t wait to try to microwave banana oat cake, since my apartment here in New Zealand only has a microwave–no oven! gasp!


Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 5, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Thank you, Angela, for featuring my recipe! I am delighted and thrilled to be included on your linky love list with so many other awesome bloggers and cooks!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and yes, the days ARE getting longer! I was just noticing that this week, and whenever I notice that, I always know that the “bonus” of changing the clocks comes soon. I love the spring for this reason! Hate the fall b/c I feel like it’s a double whammy…not only are the days getting shorter but then changing the clocks makes it feel doubly bad. Gotta love SPRING!



Gina March 5, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Thank you so much for including my recipe, Angela! It means alot :)

15 days until spring is such a wonderful bit of news. It can’t come soon enough!


JL goes Vegan March 5, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Mmmmm the curried sweet potato looks awfully good! Another great list of recipes — my “to make” list is growing!

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 5, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Oh wow, the cookies and creme cake looks amazing!! I can’t wait to see the photos of your reno project – but I agree, you should take a rest, I’d be all reno-ed out too! :)


Mae March 6, 2011 at 8:33 am

This is kind of unrelated, but I made the no bake chocolate macaroons today (, and they were great! I subbed in confectioners sugar and oat milk, and I made them about 1 inch in diameter and rolled them in the PB fudge from this recipe ( and then in more coconut. So good!


A Teenage Gourmet March 6, 2011 at 9:08 am

These post couldn’t be any more timely! I’m going vegan for lent, and I’ll definitely refer to these ideas. Thank you. :)
